COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A roasty scotch ale with a hint of smoke. Full-bodied, but not overpowering. Smokey, but not in a creepy bar kind of way. Sweet, but not obnoxiously so. Sound like your ideal mother-in-law? Fair enough, but it also is a pretty dead-on description of our Scotch Ale. In a difficult hop-growing climate, Scottish brewers relied on other ingredients to impart flavor and bitterness – one such ingredient was smoked malt. Drafty Kilt is a dark, malty bombshell of a beer.

Brewed at Thomas Creek before the brewery opened.

MNB beers definitely change in the bottle to me. They seem to become bolder. This is more smokey than its draught counterpart. A good beer.

Pour is dark umber with a modest white head. Aromas of chocolate, peaty smoke, and caramel. Taste is rich malty and smokey with a flash of peat in the finish, not super layered but rich overall. Palate is medium-full with light carbonation and a slight alcohol burn. Overall a solid brew, not spectacular but showing great promise.

Light aroma. Flavor is not that way. This is a creamy, full-bodied beer with a deep flavor of roasted malt, a slight hint of peat, and milk chocolate.
